About the book
This is the story of Hazel, the bouncy squirrel and her life-changing adventure in the Great Forest. When Hazel loses her tail in an accident, instead of doom and gloom, her dad decides to make her a new one. But first he has to venture out into the dark dangerous night to gather everything he needs…
Originally written by the author to give hope and joy to his injured young child recovering from surgery, now brightly illustrated and published as a children’s book for other children to enjoy. With themes of loss, gender roles, forest animals and nature, there's something for everyone!
